Minoru Manifesto: Performance & Picnic

Minoru Chapel

6540 Gilbert Road

Richmond, BC




Poetry & spoken word


Witness, and maybe even participate, in a community-created performance built from what we carry and what we claim. Using multiple languages and weaving song, story, and movement throughout the historic Minoru Chapel, Minoru Manifesto draws on the histories, backgrounds, and beliefs held by individuals throughout our community. Food is one of the most potent ways of carrying and sharing culture, and we invite you to bring a blanket, snacks, and friends to enjoy a post-performance picnic in the Chapel garden. Performance begins at 2:00 pm and runs approximately 45 minutes with picnic to follow. Please note: due to the historic nature of the Minoru Chapel, food and beverages are not allowed inside.

This event is free.
